This is it! As we enter the final two months of 2018 I am thrilled to let you know that the Field of Dreams capital campaign is ending as one of the most successful campaigns in Messiah’s history with over $1.5 million raised to date! First and foremost, I am thankful to God for His continued faithfulness. I am also thankful for all of you who have faithfully supported our church—through this campaign, other offerings and tithes, and your leadership and service at Messiah.
I’d like to share a few final updates with you:
- We are on track for the QT lot to be paid off in December! Wow! Stay tuned for a church-wide communication about how we plan to celebrate this exciting milestone.
- Sanctuary Renovations- Complete
- Nakabango Lutheran School-Complete
- Youth Minister-Complete
- The campaign intended to fund three years of a youth minister. Because Ryan Pfendler joined Messiah about halfway through the campaign, we still have campaign funds dedicated to this initiative and will continue to use them for this purpose
Thank you for answering the call!
Hark, the voice of Jesus calling, “Who will go and work today?
Fields are white and harvests waiting, Who will bear the sheaves away?”
Loud and long the master calls you; Rich reward he offers free.
Who will answer, gladly saying, “Here am I. Send me, send me”?
LW #318, v.1
